Amit Shah Expresses Confidence In Upcoming Bihar Polls Victory
The Union Home Minister said that compared to the 2015 elections, when the NDA alliance was weak, this time the strong coalition will lead to a victory for BJP
In an exclusive interview to a television channel, Union Home Minister Amit Shah spoke about his take on the upcoming Bihar Assembly Elections. He began by clarifying that he is in good health, post his COVID19 recovery and urged everyone to celebrate the ongoing Navratri festivities with caution and as per the Coronavirus guidelines.
On being asked about the difference in the 2015 elections in Bihar and the 2020 chapter, Shah said that 5 years back, despite being in a good position, the larger coalition of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) was weak. The opposition’s vote-share turned out to be much higher than the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) led forces.
However this year, Shah clarified that the situation is in the central government’s favour, as he expressed confidence of a victory in the state. The union minister also went on to count the party’s achievements in Bihar during the pandemic, which he believes will certainly turn the voters in their favour.
Measures including free food to the marginalised sections of society till the Chhat Puja festival, transfer of 6000 rupees to farmers’ accounts, the care given to migrants who were quarantined and given food and 1000 rupees cash by the government are some important triumphs according to Shah.
Elaborating further on the pandemic relief measures, the home minister said that the state has an infection recovery rate of over 90%, even though Bihar is known for a weaker health system compared to other states. He praised the Nitish Kumar government for its efforts in controlling the health crisis successfully.
